Vintage Finds And Saturday's Fair At The Spinney Hill

Old Yellow Gloss Frame

We found this old print in a lovely little 'Vintage' shop in Leicester. Old things painted a long time ago in bright yellow gloss, naturally distressed by age, are beginning to gather in our kitchen at home. It started with a small wooden cupboard which we found when we took the fair to Buckingham in April and continued when the fair visited Stamford for the first time in June, when we returned home with a very old and very yellow clothes airer.

A Car Boot Find

The sun was shining on Sunday morning when we headed for the car boot at Rushden and found a nice boxed tea-set from the 30s, decorated with gilt and crinoline ladies and some great magazines from the 30s and 50s. 

Getting Ready For Saturday

I have also taken advantage of the warm weather to get out and do a bit of 'postering', hope you spotted the signs if you went to the car boot at Holcot on Saturday.

Saturday 25th August 12pm - 4pm

The fair will be returning to the lovely Spinney Hill in Northampton on Saturday. We had a great time at the Vintage Fair & Jubilee Garden Party back in June that we just had to return!
